Description

    The award-winning Modern Maori Quartet are a good looking, suave contemporary Maori showband in the vein of forebears such as the Hi-Marks, Maori Volcanics Showband, Dalvanius and the Fascinations, Maori Troubadours, Maori Hi Five, Quin Tikis and The Howard Morrison Quartet.

    ‘That’s Us’ highlights their voices in epic harmony as they share Maori traditions and tell New Zealand stories through original waiata with humour, charm and class. Growing up performing in garage parties, this is a story of rags to flash rags.

    Produced by Francis Kora, the album features some of New Zealand's biggest talents including Mahuia Bridgman-Cooper (Co-Producer), Dixon Nacey (Guitar), Chris O'Connor (Drums), Thabani Gapara (Saxophone), Andy Cochrane (Keyboard), Awhimai Fraser (Vocals) and Temuera Morrison (Vocals).

    “That’s Us!” features all original waiata, as showband member Matariki Whatarau explains, “We’ve been singing covers for years and you know, we thought… why not?! The spirit of this album comes from the Maori garage party, reminiscent of the parties of years gone by when someone would pick up a guitar and the music would flow. We strongly believe that real stories told with truth and conviction should be at the forefront of who we are – and that’s exactly what we set out to do with the creation of our first album”.
